    Chris Brown's Mug Shot Surfaces Ahead of Assault Trial in Washington, D.C.—See the Pic

    Chris Brown, Mug Shot WUSA9

    Well this isn't Chris Brown's best look—or even his best mug shot, actually...

    Back in October, the singer and bodyguard Christopher Hollosy were arrested and charged with assault in Washington, D.C., for an alleged altercation with another male. (Brown has been accused of breaking the guy's nose after he reportedly tried to edge his way into a photo with the singer and two female fans.) Nearly six months later, local CBS affiliate WUSA9 obtained Brown's mug shot—posting it just in time for his D.C. trial.

    Per NBC News, the trial for Hollosy (Brown's bodyguard) beganThursday in Superior Court and is excepted to last one to two days; Brown's trial is to begin after his bodyguard's ends. Both men's cases will be tried seperately and decided by a judge, not a jury.

    The singer, who has been behind bars since March 14 (when he allegedly violated the terms of his probation set after his 2009 assault conviction involving Rihanna), was taken into custody by U.S. Marshals earlier this month and transferred from Men's Central Jail in Downtown L.A. to a facility closer to where his trial will be held in D.C.

    He faces a maximum sentence of 180 days in jail and a fine of up to $1,000. 

    Currently, Brown has an April 23 probation hearing scheduled in L.A.
